Urgent! Throttle Body Won't Come Off

In the midst of some major mods (thank god for wireless modems!) Anyway, I'm painting the brake calipers, engine cover, and trying to put on the 60mm TB and Volant Intake.

However, the old thottle body won't come off. It seems to be fused or stuck to the engine component it sit on.

How am I going to get this off? Hammer, chisle, ??? Please let me know. Thanks.

Yeah, Ford uses Super Glue to put those things on. You gotta pry on it and MAYBE give it a whack with a rubber mallet. It'll come loose, just don't scar the gasket surface or you'll have a problem.
